Abstract

In 1973 a collaborative agreement was established between the Illinois Department of Corrections and the Illinois Drug Abuse Program to provide services to resident members in the IDC who have had histories of drug abuse. This evolved into the Pontiac Drug Project. The IDC Office of Program Services investigated the role of community agencies as providers of services to incarcerated drug abusers, The West Side Organization (a community based organization) was invited to participate in planning and was previously corresponding with inmates of Pontiac with similar regard. They maintained a liaison with criminal justice agencies for provision of services to persons under their jurisdiction. The BASTA Drug Abuse Project (a community based organization) had established a program of weekly services to Pontiac residents and was also invited to participate in planning. The four agencies assigned staff to implement the initial working model of the Pontiac Drug Abuse Program (PDAP) on June 4, 1975.
